Limelight Hens and Chicks

$15.95

The Limelight Hens and Chicks variety produces medium-sized rosettes. The leaves of this variety have a wonderful symmetry, they have a powdery-satin finish, and have a chartreuse-lime body and pink tips. The Limelight also features a great symmetry, to its leaves.

Sempervivums are comprised of one large rosette called the “hen” which will then sprout many smaller rosettes around it called the “chicks”. As the plants age, the hen may die out and be replaced by the chicks. Plants can be easily divided and replanted. Particularly used for borders, containers, rock gardens, or as ground-covering. Sempervivums are monocarpic.

Prefers soil that is dry and well-drained. Will be drought tolerant once established. Heat tolerant and actually prefers poor soil (neutral or alkaline soil), over soil that is too rich or heavy clay. The Limelight has a medium growth rate. Gets to heights of 4-8inches and a spread of 6-12 inches. Surprisingly cold hardy, Sempervivums need little maintenance once established, and will survive near total neglect.
